Trusted by South Carolina's flagship university.
With over 200 years of rich history and tradition, the University of South Carolina has grown significantly from its initial enrollment of 9 students in 1805, to more than 34,000 students. At the heart of the University of South Carolina's bustling and vibrant campus community sits the Russell House University Union, one of the largest student unions in the Southeast. The Russell House University Union is an extremely busy place with more than 5,700 events, programs and meetings taking place there each year, making it the focal point of the campus life.
Assistant Director of Operations, Ryan Gross, is responsible for scheduling the 50+ staff that handle building operations, meeting room setups, staffing the information center and more. "It takes a significant number of both full-time and student employees to keep the facility and student activities running smoothly. It also takes a lot of coordination, working with the availability of staff and their fluid, ever-changing schedules," explained Ryan.
